Welcome to the “new” magazine for Saint John’s Health Center Foundation, Saint John’s. As you read through the following pages, we will be sharing with you a more comprehensive view of your Health Center, one that combines Saint John’s Medical Center, John Wayne Cancer Institute and Pacific Neurosciences Institute, while keeping you up to date on our philanthropic efforts.
Both Providence Saint John’s Health Center and its affiliates are deeply dedicated to advancing health care through research and clinical care. These enterprises create a unified team effort for which collaboration is essential, unique, and of enormous benefit to our patients. Research brings about advances in clinical care; clinical care provides essential information that inspires and informs research efforts. This translates into exceptional, compassionate care that you, your family and friends and our community deserve.
Philanthropy has made a crucial difference in making Saint John’s a top-ranked medical center year after year by providing state-of-the-art equipment, support for clinical trials and research, recruitment of world-class medical professionals and new facilities. We are fortunate to have such a caring and grateful community. As you read this issue, you will encounter inspirational stories about your Health Center, the people who provide the care you deserve and the patients whose lives have been made better- if not saved, because of these collaborative efforts.
These collaborations aren’t confined to our campus. The recurring feature about our Community Impact Fund grants will provide you some insight on how the Foundation is supporting local nonprofit organizations that are addressing a broad range of needs that all have an impact on population health. You’ll see that the close and positive relationship between the community and Saint John’s benefits everyone.
We couldn’t be more excited about our “new” publication that will provide comprehensive coverage of the ever-evolving advances within our campus, and the ways in which philanthropy helps make those advances possible.
